The City of Bangor operates a comprehensive recycling program with
both residential curbside collection and a drop-off center located
on Maine Avenue across the street from Public Works headquarters. Curbside
recycling is available to residential properties in Bangor with four
or fewer housing units. The drop-off center is available to all Bangor
The same materials that can be recycled curbside are also accepted at the drop-off center. Bins
are located outside the center and marked for the appropriate materials.
Materials can be deposited in the outside bin twenty-four hours a day,
seven days a week.
If you are new to the community, live in a single family home or an
apartment complex with four or fewer units, and dont have a
recycling bin, come to Public Works, 530 Maine Avenue, during regular
working hours (M-F, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) to pick one up. The recycling bins cost $7.50 each. Please note that only cash / checks are accepted at the Public Works facility, no credit / debit cards are accepted.
Place your recycling bin curbside on the same day your rubbish is
put out for collection. We recommend that the bin be out by 6:30 a.m.
to insure collection.View Larger Map
